Consultation

During your initial consultation, your dentist will determine if clear aligner therapy is right for you.

Impressions or Digital Imaging

Your dentist will then create a model of your bite with digital imaging technology or traditional molds. Once those are complete, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments before sending them off to our trusted dental lab where they will custom craft your first few sets of aligners.

Fitting & Next Steps

Once we receive your clear aligners, you’ll return to the office, where your dentist will check to ensure they fit just right, and make any needed adjustments. Your dentist will provide you detailed instructions about how to wear your new aligners. Most patients will wear each set for 2 weeks, and between 20-22 hours per day. Every 6 weeks or so, you’ll return to our office to pick up your next several sets of aligners and to ensure your smile is making the proper progress.
